KING HEDLEY II
By August Wilson
Directed by Gregg T. Daniel
March 31 – April 28, 2024
King Hedley II continues the stories of characters first introduced in Seven Guitars and shows the tragic realities for Black men in 1980’s, Reagan-era Pittsburgh. After seven years in prison, King attempts to rebuild his life, peddling stolen refrigerators to get the money to buy a video store. But his self-worth is built on self-delusion, and he plants seeds where nothing will grow.
Featuring the continued partnership of Director Gregg T. Daniel and A Noise Within on Wilson’s American Century Cycle.
“August Wilson’s unflinching new play may be the most passionate work that this astonishing American author has penned to date."
